After Pocahontas: Indian Women in the Colonial South
Home » Events Calendar » Museum » After Pocahontas: Indian Women in the Colonial South

When: March 18, 2018 01:00 PM until 02:00 PM Eastern Time Zone
For Women’s History Month, this presentation illuminates women whose prominent roles and presence is often hidden. “Indian princesses” were conspicuous in the early years of Virginia and the Lower South through the 1760s. They wielded influential roles in international and native American diplomacy and acted as interpreters of language and culture. So many nameless others were wives and consorts of early settlers in the wild Appalachian frontier, forgotten founders who played key roles in the formation of the American South. Our presenter Eirlys M. Barker received her Ph.D. from William and Mary, was Department Head of History at Thomas Nelson Community College and taught Women’s History and Colonial History at Old Dominion University.
